Venue: Circolo della Vela Talamone, Antonio Espada, Chief Measurer and local coordinator.

1. Basic Measurement concepts
2. The Point 0 template
3. Chine and bow radius of curvature
4. Moment of Inertia
5. How to check the floatation material

7. Adjustable mast steps and shroud length – limitations
8. Daggerboard retention system
9. Mast weight and halyard lines
Accommodation: Information on accommodation can be found on the 2015 World Championship website: www.snipeworlds.org Participants are responsible for their own accommodations.
